Sketchbook Group

There is no meeting in December, and January’s meeting will be combined with our AGM and Winter Social on Monday 15th January at the Pickled Plum. AGM business will be kept to a minimum so that we can then relax and enjoy a sociable evening. All members attending will be given a £5 subsidy on the food and/or drink of their choice. Please email Frans Swarte to book your place as soon as possible.

Our October meeting was an enjoyable evening in the meeting room at the Town Hall, where we experimented with relief printmaking using lino and Softcut. In the limited time available, everyone managed to create a design and print a proof. We plan to follow this up with a further session of printmaking in the new year.

November’s meeting was a gathering at Number 8 to see a screening of “Loving Vincent”. In the world’s first fully painted feature film, Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are brought to life to tell his story, and the mystery surrounding his death. If you missed it, do look out for another opportunity to see this beautiful film.

Photography Group

The next meeting will be at 7.30pm in the Upstairs Bar at Number 8 on 21st Decmber. This month’s suggested topic is "Night Photography". bring charged camera, tripod & dress warm! If the weather is poor, bring work on the topic of "Time". Members who like taking photos are welcome to come along and share their work on this theme or any other. Meetings are relaxed and friendly and there is always something to be learnt from the way other people use their cameras. Work can be shared in print or via your tablet / iPad, so you don’t have to go to any expense.

Exhibiting

Our exhibition at Evesham Arts Centre has been in place since 7th November 2017 and runs until 5th February 2018. The arts centre is an excellent venue for live acts and film, on a fairly intimate scale - it’s well worth looking at the calendar of events and if you visit, check out our exhibition while you’re there.

More exhibitions have been lined up for next year - come along to the AGM to find out more.
